A California woman is suing a fertility doctor in Glen Allen, Virginia, for fathering two of her children without her permission.
“In the federal lawsuit, Katherine Richards claims Doctor Michael Kiken used his own sperm to impregnate her not once, but twice, first with her daughter and then later with her son,” WRIC reported Thursday.
In the late 1970s, she and her husband went to Kiken for help when they were unable to conceive. Richards said she was told the donor would remain anonymous.
However, the doctor used his own sperm to impregnate Richards without her knowledge.
“It’s unthinkable. He secretly used his own sperm and now I have to know that he violated me,” she said.
In a response last month from his lawyers, Kiken denied doing anything wrong and “admits that Dr. Kiken inserted the sperm of an anonymous, to the plaintiff, donor as requested, which was his own sperm,”
